Hi Iā€™m Uka, an illustrator based in Seattle, WA.

My goal is to bring exposure to animal rescue and shelter organizations. By doing one portrait at a time, I am hoping to raise awareness of foster animals. These paintings are focused on each of the individual animals and their unique patterns, shapes, and personalities, rather than on their breeds. With any purchase you make on this site, 50% of all proceeds go to selected animal foster/rescue organizations. If you simply want to donate without making a purchase, I've included a link to a couple great organizations in the Pacific Northwest and Taiwan.

Please reach out if you would like to collaborate or simply want to say hi. You can email me at: hello@illusyu.com

Thank you for stopping by!
